You want your indoor air quality to be as fresh and pure as possible, but you feel like the air inside your home could be better. To improve the indoor air quality in your home, these simple tips can help:
- Open your windows – Even though this tip may seem extremely simple, it’s highly effective. If the weather is nice outside, open a few of your windows to let in the cool air and refresh the air inside your home.
- Smoke outside – If friends or family members smoke, encourage them to go outside to do so. This will keep the air inside your home fresh and clean.
- Keep things clean—While you don’t need to make your home a museum, keeping things relatively clean can go a long way when it comes to improving your indoor air quality. We recommend using a doormat to keep dust from entering your home and asking people to take off their shoes before they come inside. You should also aim for vacuuming / mopping your floors on a weekly basis.
- Skip synthetic fragrances—These fragrances are everywhere, from laundry detergent to hand soaps and air fresheners. Try to use natural products without fragrance whenever possible to keep your air fresh and clean.
- Manage humidity levels – Humidity levels in your home should be between 30 and 50 percent. This will prevent mold growth and keep moisture levels at an optimal level. If your home’s humidity levels are too high, we recommend using a dehumidifier.
